Halloween 2010


At a Halloween dance this year, I made scores of photographs of costumed participants using the “Hip Shots” technique. The “shoot-from-the-hip” method, executed without concern for focus and framing, produces a lot of waste and the occasional dynamic picture. In this case I thought the free-form technique was especially appropriate for the subject. The following post is the first in a series which will appear on this blog each Wednesday, until I run out of suitable photos. Second in the Halloween series, titled “Dancers,” will post next Wednesday. Meanwhile, you may like to tap the “Hip Shots” tag in the toolbar above for examples from the regular series, which post each Friday.
